Apollo Module being moved to Great Lakes Science Center

by NASA

Published August 27, 2010


This Apollo Command Module, which traveled 26.5 million miles in space, made a delicate 13-mile journey from NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland to the Great Lakes Science Center, located in downtown Cleveland, on June 22. The command module is now safely installed in its new home at Glenn Research Center's Visitor Center at the Science Center. The Visitor Center contains artifacts, models and interactive experiences relating to aeronautics and space. The command module, weighing in at 12,800 pounds and standing more than 11 feet tall and 13 feet wide, is the centerpiece of the collection at the Visitor Center. The module is on loan from the Smithsonian Institute's National Air and Space Museum. Image Credit: NASA Bridget R. Caswell, Wyle Information Systems LLC
